Little Sesame, the hotly anticipated fast-casual hummus hot spot, officially opened today. That means it’s time to take a look at the spot’s opening menu. The dishes mimic the interior design — think light and filled with plants.

The menu’s format will feel familiar to anyone who frequents fast-casual spots: the two main sections are dedicated to hummus bowls (served with pita) and pita sandwiches. This is definitely next-level hummus — while bowl #6 is a classic hummus bowl, item #4 mixes sweet corn with onion and pickled chili. Breakfast is available all day via pita sandwich #7 — avocado, salad, za’atar and a 10-hour egg. Side dishes (salatim) include watermelon fattoush with herbs and peanut dukkah and a chopped salad with tahini and za’atar.

For drinks, there’s butterfly pea flower lemonade, black tea with hibiscus. Dessert is dairy-free soft serve in two flavors, vanilla tahini or dark chocolate turkish coffee, with one topping included.

Prices at Little Sesame are reasonable and aimed at lunchers — the most expensive items clock in at $10.
